Play of the Day: Miles Austin goes low
By Tim MacMahon
OXNARD, Calif. – Miles Austin’s drops disease was apparently a one-day malaise.
Austin, who dropped five passes during Sunday’s two practices, responded by performing like a Pro Bowler the next day.
A shoestring catch highlighted Austin’s magnificent Monday. Tony Romo’s throw on an out route was low, but Austin gracefully grabbed the ball a few inches off the ground as safety Barry Church dove in front of him to try to deflect the pass.
The most impressive part of the play was that Austin didn’t break his stride to make the scoop. He immediately turned upfield and took a few steps into the end zone for a 25-yard touchdown.
